Healing Developmental Trauma: How Early Trauma Affects Self-Regulation, Self-Image, and the Capacity for Relationship
By Laurence Heller, PhD and Aline LaPierre, PsyD
This book introduces a new paradigm for understanding human development and the symptoms that result from developmental trauma. Now translated in nine languages, the book emphasizes working with a person’s strengths, capacities, and resiliency to regulate the nervous system and promote connection to self and others.
Healing Developmental Trauma provides clear guidance to help us hold, with knowledge and self-compassion, those seemingly irreconcilable opposites and is a vital and accessible map supporting emotional maturity and psycho-spiritual growth.
